The JSA requires permits for various activities in relation to the publicly owned wastewater system, including:
Connection Permits - A fully executed Sanitary Sewer Connection Permit is required for all new connections and reconnections to the publicly owned wastewater system. Fees associated with the sanitary sewer connection permit may be found in our current rate schedule. Connection Permits may be completed at our office located at 621 Northview Street in Paducah.
Disconnection Permits - A Disconnection Permit is required when service to a location is disconnected. This is generally when a residence or building is being demolished. The current property owner of the building to be demolished is disconnect the private lateral from the JSA system at the roadway right-of-way line, and place a cap over the remainder of the lateral connected to the sewer main. No fees for this permit is required, however, a JSA staff member is to inspect the cap prior to backfill being placed in the trench. Disconnection Permits may be completed at our office located at 621 Northview Street in Paducah or at the City of Paducah Inspection Department located at the Paducah City Hall, 300 South 5th Street.
Industrial Use Permits – All non-domestic users whose flow enters the JSA system are potentially subject to an Industrial Use Permit.
Waste Hauler Pemits - Any person who transports septic tank, grease, or other batch liquid waste and wishes to discharge such waste to the JSA system shall first have a valid Waste Hauler Permit.
